The Onyx Cornerstone

If Merriam-Webster defines the Ivory Tower as "a secluded place that affords the means of treating practical issues with an impractical often escapist attitude," then the Onyx Tower is a globally relevant and universally accessible place that facilitates progression toward success through self-determined interest in practical issues and actionable problems.


I think learning online should be an adventure, a journey. Onyx Education is an oasis for providing a new standard of educational excellence for all learners.

- Chris Kelly, Onyx Founder & CEO
